Re-install windows.
Being a new computer it should have come with recovery discs.
Put it in and restart the computer and follow the prompts.

What do I do?!


Try this:

Reboot your PC into Safe Mode With Networking:

Start your computer in safe mode


Safe mode starts Windows with a limited set of files and drivers. Startup programs don't run in safe mode, and only the basic drivers needed to start Windows are installed. For more information, see What is safe mode?

Safe mode is useful for troubleshooting problems with programs and drivers that might not start correctly or that might prevent Windows from starting correctly. If a problem doesn't reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers as possible causes. If a recently installed program, device, or driver prevents Windows from running correctly, you can start your computer in safe mode and then remove the program that's causing the problem. For more information about troubleshooting problems in safe mode, see Diagnostic tools to use in safe mode.

  1. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.
    Click the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, click the arrow next to the Shut Down button eb058ccf-b21e-4dfe-9bb7-1ad6c83b705c_47.jpg, and then click Restart.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you'll need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.

    • If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to start in safe mode, and then press F8.

  3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight the safe mode option you want, and then press Enter. For more information about options, see Advanced startup options (including safe mode).

  4. Log on to your computer with a user account that has administrator rights.

When your computer is in safe mode, you'll see the words Safe Mode in the corners of your monitor. To exit safe mode, restart your computer and let Windows start normally.

Once in Safe Mode With Networking

Click on the two links below and go to the download now tab. Save Rkill and Malwarebytes to the desktop.

First run Rkill then Malwarebytes.

ACER ASPIRE 5532 LOCKED UP, WON'T GO PAST THE "ACER empowering people" logo at startup. press f2 and it says "please wait" then won't do anything else. Pressing f12 to change start-up...


1. Turn the Laptop off 2. Remove the battery 3. Disconnect the AC adapter from the laptop 4. Disconnect any peripheral devices from the laptop such as printer usb cables, PCMCIA cards etc. 5. Push and hold the power button for 60 seconds then let go 6. Connect the AC adapter to your laptop 7. Push power button to turn on the laptop 8. If this resolves the issue shutdown the laptop connect the battery and turn laptop back on
If issue is not resolved restart the computer and begin tapping the F8 key repeatedly until you see a screen that gives you options to enter different modes. Highlight "Safemode" and press enter. If the computer boots completely into safemode you likely have a driver that has corrupted or a hardware device that has failed. Likely driver failures are video card drivers. Got to Device Manager and uninstall the video card driver and restart the system. You can do this with other drivers as well.

The acer travelmate 3270 freezes after signing / logging in


Could be an issue wth the OS. Take a data backup and do an OS reinstallation. or you can do a complete system recovery by the recovery manager in the notebook.

Start>All Programs>Acer>Acer Erecovery Management

Allow the program to run. Select the option 'Restore'. Click on 'Completely Restore to Factory Defaults". then click on start or ok and let it restore.

Window vista is not booting the computer


Try starting in safe mode. If it does boot in safe mode then go to HELP, THEN SYSTEM RESTORE, pick a date before you had these problems. Good luck. You start in safe mode by pressing F8 then selecting SAFE MODE from the menu.

Windows recovery disk with safe mode


Try this. While you are in Windows click on Start>programs>accessories>system tools then click on system restore. You will be asked to choose a date, choose a date before this started happening it should reset your computer to that date. In the meantime, yes, you need to get a copy of your operating system from www.microsoft.com so you can fix problems in the future.

Automatically stops and starts


This is usually because of a bad driver. Boot the computer and press F8 every half second until you see a black&White text menu - then choose safe mode boot

If it does boot then try System Restore back to earlier point in time.

Report back what happens?

Hi
It seems that your computer is infected with a spyware. I will give you some steps to try and resolve this.

Step - ( This will remove spy wares from the computer )
Open this link and download Free superantispyware
http://www.superantispyware.com/
Scan your computer with this and clean it.

If it does not let you download this, you need to try this in the "Safe mode with Networking"

Step to go to "Safe mode with Networking"
Turn off the computer. As soon as you turn it on start tapping the key "F8" untill you get a black screen with options of "Safe mode" and "Safe mode with Networking", select the second one and than log on to the computer.

Your display will be big and distorted in safe mode, dont worry as its a diagnostics mode.
Once downloaded the software you might need to rung the software in normal mode as sometimes this software does not work in the safe mode.
To get back to the normal mode. Simply restart your computer.

Hope this should take care of your issue.
